I first attended the BabyTime Show when I was about 5 months pregnant with Lilly. I remember walking in and feeling immediately awe-struck and a little overwhelmed. I have been in corporate marketing for almost 10 years and have attended and/or exhibited at my fair share of trade and consumer shows. However, this was unlike anything I had seen before. There was hundreds of vendors, offering everything you could possibly need for your pregnancy and little one.
I ventured in and got lost in the excitement of it all for the next 3 hours! I was a little exhausted by the end of it, but it was completely worth it. I walked out with a huge bag of goodies and a heap of new mama knowledge.
I have since headed back down for the show many times, but I am particularly excited to head down next weekend. This time, I am heading back down as a pregnant mama and I am bringing the family with me. I can’t wait to see Lilly’s face when she walks into that giant hall.

I have to say, I am super excited about the My Little Pony shows at the Play-Doh Center! For anyone who is a regular on this blog, you know I have a 3 year old horse fanatic on my hands. You can guess that ponies fall well into that category obsession as well! She is going to lose her mind when she sees this

I will be selecting and contacting the winners on Thursday, November 7th. NOTE: Prize packs will be available for pick up at the show.
Now, this will be the first time my husband ever braves this show. I have dragged him to the odd local baby show up here before, but nothing nearly this size…
Ideally speaking, he is going to love it (or at least the goodies) as much as I do and I won’t lose him in the crowd!
